The Benefits of E-Learning
All employers are familiar with this situation. There’s a training course that you need to put your staff through, but it’s proving impossible to find a time that works for every member of your team. Often, this can lead to inconvenient compromises made in order to conduct a course and can put a roadblock on actually moving forward with training.
So, what’s a good way to get around this? PSC has taken taken our training into the 21st Century by turning to the online sector to find innovative solutions to our training needs, through blended learning that includes e-Learning.
What is e-learning?
E-learning is the use of technological processes to access learning material outside of a traditional classroom or office. E-learning is also often referred to as online learning or web-based training. E-learning provides an innovative and convenient option for organizations and businesses like PSC across a whole range of sectors.
The rise of customized e-learning
Customized e-learning allows PSC to design an e-learning course that specifically meets our needs. In doing so, managers are able to get right to the crux of the areas that they need their teams to address, providing them with exposure to the skills, knowledge and techniques that will allow them to excel in their work. E-learning is also a very popular option for training courses that are required by law, such as health and safety and display screen equipment.
The importance of self-pacing
One of the greatest advantages of e-learning is the ability that it gives staff to self-pace their learning. Research has increasingly shown that giving employees who are undergoing training the ability to self-pace their learning increases the level of skill retention in those who have undergone the training. Self-pacing also ensures that your team can move at a speed that is compatible with their busy schedules, allowing them to go about their day-to-day routine while fitting in the training at a convenient moment.
What PSCU e-learning looks like
E-learning encompasses a range of teaching techniques, including informative videos, diagrams, info-graphics, and quizzes that engage the learner. All of the above have been designed to be incredibly user-friendly, and to make it easy for those undergoing training to track their learning. Nearly all of our online / e-learning courses culminate in an exam which tests the skills and knowledge that have been covered in the course. Upon passing this exam, the trainee receives a certificate which acts as formal proof of their new skill sets!
